Today’s Top Tips for Live Music (November 21, 2021)
Best bet: “TrueSongs 2021: Lyrics of Life” @ Caffe Lena, Saratoga Springs.
Seven courageous people will share a personal story, and seven songwriters will help us feel the emotion of what these storytellers have been through. This is TrueSongs, an annual event that reveals real life challenges faced by our neighbors.
Each storyteller has been paired with a songwriter who will capture the story with lyrics and melodies. At the performance, each pair will take the stage together, and make these true experiences come alive with an artistic presentation that breaks through stereotypes and boundaries.
Featured Songwriters: Jim Gaudet, Katie Quinn with Jes Hudak, Girl Blue, Kate McDonnell, Lorne Clarke, Mark Tolstrup and Thomasina Winslow. (7:00)
